ooooh, drama.

Louisa done surpassed herself on this one.


(and for extra indulgent feels overload, if not the good old "as the world falls down" canon soudtrack for this I have insistent mental echoes from Bastille's 'Pompeii': )
[as the walls keep tumbling down in the city that we love] -

~ if you close your eyes
does it almost feel like you've been here before?

how am i gonna be an optimist about this...? ~






This is a work of fanart, and only intended for shits and giggles and vicarious fangirl thrills. Not my characters, no profit being made.

For reference on what I mean, watch 5:46 to 5:53 of "Underpants: Pacifist Ending" on Youtube

That last panel still takes my breathe away. You've really created something amazing.

Let's have a glance at the void, eh?

"back where they arrived from" -- well, that should be a reasonably comprehensive cover-all (always a good idea when you're dealing with fairy magic).  Though I'm not clear where the wishing power comes from, or why she is confident that she has it; too long since I saw the film now, I suspect.  It's clearly something to do with the glowing necklace, presumably with overtones of Goblin Queen and/or Chosen Consort-elect and being in Jareth's world...

Oops. Apparently 'back where you arrived from' doesn't work on Jareth, given that everybody else is more or less in the inside of his head at this point so this effectively is where he arrived from! But does Sarah's power extend to defying the effects of her own wish?
And once the bubble has gone, where will Jareth be...?

Sarah has "Certain Powers", and to the best of her knowledge those involve at least The Right Words - things she says that start with "I wish..." tend to get magic happening. Of course the usual purveyor, or at least, conductor, of the magic being out for the count, this one's an unusual state of affairs...

I just noticed on this re read that Sarah has the gk symbol on her dress at her throat...and it's glowing.

Oh my heavens, all of the emotions this masquerade ball has brought. Such an amazing collaboration between you all, and I am so thrilled that you have kept it going. Marvelous, breath-taking, stunning work.

Wwwwhoa, EPIC. ABSOLUTELY epic, the whole framing and whatever you call it, how it just fills up the space and angles about and POPS out at you--geez, awesome!

"The suspense is terrible. I hope it will last." :meow:

Personally, I don't mind a failing (/missing) fail-field at all here... :heart:

........And suddenly that last panel is the saddest thing I've ever seen. *cries*

Don't make this about... what happened today. Please.
I can just about deal with the very sad news of an iconic, but aging, rockstar passing; but if the Labyrinth fandom starts bringing the death fics I will go to pieces.

Awwwww. Both in the "I liked that dream" sad form and in the "she's gonna make sure he's okay" happy form.

Also, I notice she's got the amulet on. *waggles eyebrows*

Rereading the ballroom arc for at least the tenth time. I notice new details each time. Today, it's that the last song of the playlist "Push me to the floor" may have been foreshadowing. Obviously she didn't physically "push" him, but her words are what sent Jareth over the edge concentration-wise. I still love that last panel. Would you ever consider making it a desktop background?

Ah, bonus.

What an awful lots of feels and drama to have as a daily background tho!

I died with that last panel. Just died.
As a matter of fact, I'm writing from the great beyond. Is pretty boring here without your comic to keep us entertained >_<
Instant fav, as ussual

I would've said " I wish for everyone including Jareth and me, to be safely transported back to our apartments, right now."

BEST. MUSIC. TIMING. EVER. Just as the world started to fall down (hah), things switched over to Two Steps from Hell's "Threnody."
